A controversial and crude Film depicting the harsh reality of illegal immigration in Europe in general and along the Italian coasts in particular. Through a fictional violent disposal of the lifeless bodies of immigrants who do not survive the Voyage of Hope, the film presents a metaphorical vision of the cruel dark soul of xenophobia and deep racism. Not a gentle or condescending film but a real blow to the stomach for the degree of violence and inhuman behaviour that stems from hatred and fear of diversity.

After each film there will be a 2 minute break, during which we invite the audience to complete score cards. The cards go towards the scoring of the films and are sent directly to the filmmakers to provide insight into the audiences response.
